The Benefits of Laser Skin Tightening

If you're not familiar with the process of laser skin tightening, it involves a non-surgical method using lasers to promote collagen production after having penetrated through the deeper layers of your body's skin. The reason it's desirable to promote production of collagen is because collagen is the main building block for providing strength to your skin, as well as elasticity and freshness. Here are some of the benefits which you can obtain from laser skin tightening, and why it will be worth your while to consider the process.

Non-surgical body contouring

In addition to body contouring, laser skin tightening can be used to accomplish a facelift for patients who are bothered by sagging neck skin or other obvious signs of aging around the face. In fact, it's a great alternative to any kind of cosmetic facial surgery, especially for those individuals who have medical conditions which prevent this type of surgery. Body contouring can be accomplished by stimulating greater production of collagen, which will allow the skin to become smoother and firmer.

No downtime

One of the best benefits of laser skin toning and tightening is that you won't have to take any time off work, and you won't need any recovery period. You will be able to resume your regular schedule and your normal activities immediately after being treated. Most patients only experience some mild swelling or redness in the area affected, and even these side effects will disappear within a few hours after treatment.

Very little discomfort

This type of laser treatment involves almost no discomfort to the patient, and the only visible signs are some mild swelling or redness. There is no layer or area of skin which gets removed, and there is no pain or discomfort associated with the process. People who have a low tolerance to pain are thus ideal candidates for this type of procedure.

Greater production of collagen

The youthful glow of your skin is primarily due to collagen production, and that's why people who go through aging will lose that youthful glow during the process. This results in a gradual loosening of your skin, and a kind of drying out which gives your skin a leathery appearance, as opposed to the vitality you enjoyed during your younger years. Laser skin tightening penetrates the deeper layers of skin and releases heat, which triggers more collagen production, and that in turn helps to restore the youthful vitality of your skin.

Results which last

After you've undergone a series of treatments, you can expect that the results imparted to your skin will last for up to several years. Of course, this will depend on the laxity of your skin prior to undergoing treatment, but you will always see an improvement over your original skin condition. Most people experience significant enhancement of their skin appearance even after just a few sessions. However, you may also choose to arrange for yearly treatments, so as to manage particularly difficult areas which are more susceptible to skin laxity, and which require periodic attention.
